WARSAW, December 3 /TASS/. Vandals have desecrated a war cemetery in Bialystok, a city in eastern Poland, where Red Army soldiers who died liberating Poland from fascist occupants are buried, local police said on Wednesday, adding that criminal proceedings have been launched.
The local police press secretary noted that unknown vandals had dug out 26 tombstones with red stars from the ground and scattered them all over the cemetery’s territory. He did not say when exactly the act of vandalism, which was reported quite recently, had been committed.
The city authorities have temporarily relocated the tombstones to a city cemetery promising to return them to their old places when the weather improves.
The war cemetery was founded in Bialystok in 1944. It has hundreds of graves, some of which can be collective.
